It is estimated that worldwide up to 50% of plant species face extinction.
That's a significant threat to our planet. Every plant performs vital functions that make life on earth possible.
How you can help
Donations will help us to protect an endangered plant species. By joining the Save a Species campaign today, you will help us protect our planet.
However you decide to get involved, you will be helping to preserve plants and the important roles they perform.
How does it work?
Save a Species is supporting the NSW Seedbank - an amazing way of storing seeds and plant DNA to prevent the loss of plant species from ecological habitats.
Through this network the NSW Seedbank has helped bank 10% of the world's plant species and is committed to reaching 25% by 2020.
Our Seedbank is targeting plants most at risk from climate change and human activities to ensure the powerful blueprints contained in plant DNA aren't lost forever.
